April's reading

I reviewed nine books in April, which comes as a surprise as it didn't feel like a typical month of reading.  That's especially the case given I also read a couple of non-fiction books that I've not yet got round to reviewing.  It felt like a five book month!  The standout read was Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer.

The Polka Dot Girl by Darragh McManus ****
The Perfect Crime by Les Edgerton ***.5
The Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley ***.5
Die a Little by Megan Abbott ****
The Devil Doesn't Want Me by Eric Beetner ****.5
Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer *****
Missing in Rangoon by Christopher G. Moore ***.5
Blood from a Stone by Donna Leon ***
A Man Without Breath by Philip Kerr ***

So many people have been so impressed with Rubbernecker, I am going to have to try it, even though it doesn't seem to be the type of mystery I would like. A great list of books you have read recently.

Hi Rob,

The amount of books you devour is impressive to me, as I'm a slow, analytical reader. It's always useful to read your detailed reviews.

Keep up the good 'work'.

Regards,
Col

Have to agree on Rubbernecker, Rob. Brilliant recommendation. The Patrick Fort character was a triumph.
